Environmental factors often have a significant effect on whether or not children develop the attitudes and aptitudes for success in educational outcomes as well as in life. As such, Sri KDU International School Klang works closely with global education leaders to create a learning environment that is conducive for our students to develop into digital leaders of the future.
EDUSPAZE SINGAPORE: EDUCATION TECHNOLOGY COGNITIVE (ETC) LAB @ PRESTIGIOUS SCHOOLS
EduSpaze is Singapore’s first Edtech accelerator supported by trade and development agency, Enterprise Singapore. Eduspaze works with education innovators to help them co-innovate with other stakeholders and develop solutions that improve learning outcomes and impact.
Prestigion is working in partnership with EduSpaze to establish our Education Technology Cognitive (ETC) Lab. The ETC Lab is an incubator space that connects educators and edtech startups, to reimagine education. Within the enriching ETC Lab ecosystem, edtech startups can access greater support by creating, sharing and exchanging best practices with each other.
The ETC Lab will also be a space where innovators can collaborate with Sri KDU International School Klang teachers to turn ideas into actionable solutions to enhance the teaching and learning experiences in our schools.
